Nevis’ Major Inhabitant – The Vervet Monkey

36 square miles of friendliness and densely populated with more monkeys than people. We are one of the very few Caribbean islands with a large population of African Green Vervet Monkeys. Green Vervet monkeys were first brought here as pets in the 17th or 18th centuries. Some escaped or were set free, and they managed to establish themselves very well in the wild. Some would agree or disagree that they have become quite a nuisance to residents of this little island paradise.

Frequently one may glimpse monkeys almost anywhere on Nevis. A great example is on the Four Seasons Golf Course; you are often joined by green vervet monkeys and they seldom recommend the right club for you shot. Although the monkeys generally prefer to stay away from people, they seek high interest in gardens, farms, and fruit trees of every kind. Actually the monkeys are a major problem for anyone on the island (farmer or householder) who is trying to grow fruit or vegetables.

For those who may enjoy the sighting of monkeys the most reliable area on Nevis for visitors to see monkeys is in the grounds of Golden Rock Hotel, especially in or near the mango and citrus trees, either early in the morning or late in the afternoon. Hopefully one may be lucky enough to come across a troop in a quiet place. You will be amazed to see their highly organized social structure, and if you are close enough, you will hear a wide range of quiet vocalizations as they communicate with one another. They can also be spotted at the beach or in ghauts enjoying either the secrecy or the fresh water.

It’s rumoured that residents who view the monkeys as nuisance often end up making a meal out of them! Monkey stew? We haven’t tried it as yet but some residents swear it is a delicacy. On your next visit to Nevis will you try it?

Island Life

Living on an island is a fantasy of many. Although most prefer to live the fast life here are few reasons why island living should become a reality. Island life has a pace that encourages you to stop and appreciate all the natural beauty around you. An unspoilt presence of relaxation, blue skies, clean air and long beaches. On the island you are surrounded by wild life; herds of goats and roaming cows. One may even come across families of mongoose or a few black bellied sheep.

Tranquillity is a guarantee 

St Kitts and Nevis is a perfect getaway to recharge your batteries. You may take a hike in our mountains to the rain forest or stop by the waterfalls. How about a stroll or well needed dip in our shallow and clean waters? With so many different activities to choose from, you won’t lack the comfort you desire.

Island People

There are no strangers on either islands; just genuine people who are pleased to meet you. Everywhere you go you’ll receive a friendly greeting, a bright small and you are sure to leave with a friend or two. Light summer clothing may be worn all year, cool like summer breeze. That is exactly how the people are, just like the weather, cool and easy going as if they have no care.
